New career options

Hi, I’m new to all things HR and currently don’t work in the sector, though the role I now do has some elements of HR to it. I am due to complete my CIPD level 3 and always intended, once I qualified, to look for work as a HR assistant. Given the current job climate, am I being naive to think anyone would consider my application? Would appreciate any input on this. Thanks

    Welcome to the communities

    If you do a search you will find that people asking questions about breaking into HR or getting that first job is probably one of the most asked questions. That means there is a huge amount of very valuable information already that you can read and reflect upon.

    My main advice would dont expect the L3 to be a magic ticket - it will be tough. Its achievable but very tough and you will have to be very resilient.

    Good luck
  • Thank you so much for taking the time to respond.
    I completely agree that L3 is not enough, that’s why I took a lower paid job at work to get some experience.
    I’ll have a look at the other information available on the site to help me as well.
    Thanks for your wishes and comments.
